Fact check..
Great show, amazing Iko as well.
This show began at 7:00, the daytime shows were in 85.
The second show had a massive hail storm and rain all day,
the 1st set was filled w/ lightning only, and no rain.
No rain during Rider, the skies cleared during Ship of fools I believe, And wow...What a full moon.
Never had such a good time.

Damn you - don't take away my memory. I guess it was just recalling be wet and that line being belted out. I do recall the full moon (although not as much as the one at the Greek on Friday the 13th)

Sorry B.D.,
It was a HUGE moment. After the rain all day and afternoon the place went absolutely nuts after the headlight verse.
Still my fav. China/Rider.

For the second time in two years, i stand corrected. My memory is of a compelling daytime Black Peter and a US Blues closer which indeed was the September 6th, 1985 performance, not the June 14th, 1984 second set. My reversed memory of 1984 & 1985 is probably due to the lack of remarkable musical performances those two years.

The following afternoon September 7th, 1985 was the better show of the run. And because of the riff raff in downtown Morrison during and after the June 1984 run the City placed a 2pm start time and curfew on the 1985 shows.

We were about twenty rows back from the stage on June 12th, 1984 it was Game 7 of the NBA finals, Celtics vs Lakers. I brought along a Sony watchman to view the game during the first set while it was still daylight and lost my bet when Bird & company stuck it to the Lakers. If you weren't in the first forty rows at Red Rocks you really weren't at the show.

Anyway, the June 14th 1984 second set posted in this thread is pretty decent music for 1984.

Just sayin ...
